Organised by Bognor Regis Tone Zone Runners with support from Bognor Hotham Rotary Club, the race will take runners from West Park, along the prom through Felpham before making their way back to the finish line.
A much-anticipated highlight of the local running calendar, the race is one of the biggest events in the town and offers a great chance for personal best 10km times along it’s fast, flat route.
It aims to attract experienced runners, as well as those new to running, and makes for a great day for runners, families and friends.
The Bognor Prom 10k brings the community together and raises thousands of pounds for charity. Each year, the race supports a local charity and Cancer United has been selected as the charity partner for 2024. Based in West Sussex, the cancer support charity offers help and support for all those living in Sussex whose lives have been affected by a cancer diagnosis.
Jan Sheward, founder and chair of Cancer United says: ‘We are absolutely thrilled to have been selected as the official charity partner for the 2024 Bognor Prom 10km Road Race. Their generous support will play a crucial role in amplifying our mission to raise awareness of the very special benefits we offer to those affected by cancer across the entire County.’
Peter Ramsdale, Race Director of the Bognor Prom 10k says: ‘We are so pleased to be able to support such a worthy local charity. Everyone taking part in 2024 will be helping to support Cancer United and the brilliant work they do.
‘The Bognor Prom 10km Road Race is always such a fantastic event with brilliant support lining the route. We encourage anyone interested to sign up early to guarantee their space!’
Anyone signing up early will benefit from a reduced ticket price of £25 (£23 for affiliated runners) – but these spaces are limited so early sign up is encouraged.
The 1.5km junior fun run will also return for 2024, offering children aged four to 15 years the chance to set off and return across the main start and finish line in Silverston Avenue.
